Premature ejaculation is defined as ejaculation occurring before a man or his partner desires it.(1)
So you ejaculate before you “should”… Not a problem!
Historically, ejaculation was only considered a means of guaranteeing the reproduction of a man's decendants, which meant speed and agility were reputable traits both on the battle field and in the bedroom. Today, sexual interaction is about experiencing pleasure, and, as a result, premature ejaculation (PE) can negatively affect the level of sexual satisfaction of both men and/or their partner.(2)
PE can affect men at any age. Some men experience physiological PE (primary), occurring and persisting from their first sexual encounter, while others develop PE after a period of normally controlled ejaculation (secondary). Secondary PE is often associated with a decline in erectile function.(3)
"Open communication between sex partners can often alleviate difficulties with sexual satisfaction, and contribute to a healthy overall sexuality."
It is common to develop premature ejaculation, as well as erectile dysfunction symptoms as a psychological response to illnesses such as depression, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. Environmental factors such as stress, anxiety, and relationship distress can contribute to a decline in erectile function. Open communication between sex partners can often alleviate difficulties with sexual satisfaction, and contribute to a healthy overall sexuality.(4)
